Banana Pancakes With Honey Butter

Banana pancakes with whipped honey butter, quick, easy and healthy(ish), perfect for breakfast or brunch - Domestic Gothess I often buy bananas with the intention of letting them go brown and overripe as I love to bake with them; they are horrible to eat as they are, but mash them up and mix them into cake, or milkshake, or pancakes and they become something truly delicious. The smell of banana bread baking is utterly irresistible; when I don’t want to wait for banana bread to bake though, banana pancakes are the next best thing. They are super quick and easy to make, taste amazing and are much healthier than cake! (more…)

Vanilla Almond Milk Porridge With Honey Roasted Pear

Vanilla amond milk porridge with honey roast pear, cinnamon and hazelnuts. Dairy free and easily adaptable to be vegan. I had never tried almond milk up until a couple of days ago when I saw that it was on offer and bought some on a whim. I didn’t think that I would really like it but was interested to try…and now I’m hooked! It’s surprisingly delicious, though not for everyone; Damian tried it and proclaimed it to be “really weird, and the taste didn’t fit the texture”, whatever that means…he’s odd. I don’t think I would ever want it in my tea, but I would now rather drink a glass of almond milk as opposed to regular milk, and almond milk hot chocolate is something of a revelation. (more…)

Semolina And Rosemary Bread

Semolina and rosemary bread made with honey and olive oilThis bread should have made it onto the blog over a month ago but I had somewhat of an error of judgement when it came to the shaping of it… I was aiming for a spiral, but what came out of the oven looked, and there is no other way of putting this, like a giant turd…It was at once hilariously funny, and incredibly frustrating as the bread tasted amazing, but there was no way I could post it, it just looked too unseemly. I resolved to bake it again, with a little more thought to the shaping of the loaf…. (more…)

Cinnamon Honey Cornmeal Pancakes With Lemon Honey Cinnamon Syrup & Roasted Plums

Honey cinnamon cornmeal pancakes with lemon honey cinnamon syrup & roasted plums - Domestic GothessWhen I was sent an OXO Good Grips non stick frying pan (£50 from Lakeland) to review I knew exactly what to make in it to test it – pancakes! they are one of the best (and tastiest) ways to test just how non stick a pan is, if you can flip a pancake cleanly then it’s a goodun. The Good Grips frying pan was perfect for pancakes – I only had to use the teeniest smidge of butter to cook them in and they didn’t stick at all. It felt very solidly made, with the kind of non-stick coating that isn’t just going to flake off after a couple of uses (I’ve bought some very cheap and crappy cookware in the past…always a false economy) and I was impressed by the addition of a silicone handle in place of the usual plastic which means that the pans are oven-proof up to 200°C, a bonus for me as I didn’t actually own a single frying pan that could go in the oven… And if you are lucky enough to own a dishwasher, it is dishwasher safe and suitable for use on induction hobs.

Muesli Bread

Muesli bread, the perfect healthy, filling breakfast - Domestic GothessI think I may have found a new favourite bread; this muesli bread is hearty, satisfying, delicious and it’s healthy! It is also a great way to use up some of that half eaten packet of muesli forgotten about at the back of the cupboard for 6+ months… (just me?). It stays soft for a good few days in a airtight container and makes fantastic toast; I’ve been enjoying it for breakfast slathered with butter and jam. The flavour is slightly sweet from the dried fruit and a little maple syrup and there’s a hint of warm cinnamon. Because it is full of oats, fruit and nuts it is very filling, so it makes a great breakfast or snack. (more…)

Fresh Ginger & Honey Ice Cream

Fresh ginger and honey ice cream - Domestic GothessI don’t know what the weather is like where you are, but in the UK it has been HOT (relatively…I know that some of you will sneer at our paltry 30 degrees, but we don’t do heat well in the UK, and being a goth I melt when exposed to bright sunlight…); I made the mistake of attempting to do a kettlebell workout yesterday…and I have never sweat so much in all my life…the floor around me was actually wet (pleasant I know). So obviously I have wanted to live off of nothing but ice cream. (more…)

Peach, Pistachio & Rose Tarts

 Peach, pistachio & rose tarts - Domestic GothessI have been away from the blog for a little while – visiting my parents and cat-sitting in London; and have struggled to find the time (and motivation – the weather has been so warm I have just wanted to be outside) to do any blogging, so apologies to those of you who have commented and I haven’t yet replied to, service shall resume as normal as of now! I did not stop baking however; so I do have a few delicious things to share with you, the first of which is these gorgeous peach, pistachio and rose tarts. (more…)

Coconut & Almond Pancakes With Spiced Plum Compote

high protein coconut and almond pancakes

I am a boring breakfast eater. Most days I’ll just have a bowl of cereal or occasionally porridge because I wake up hungry (surprise, surprise…I’m always hungry…), so I want something quick, I don’t want to faff around cooking while I’m hungry and half asleep (I am not a morning person…). But on the odd occasion I’ll be in the mood for something a bit more special, and what is a better breakfast than pancakes? Sticking with my resolution to try to make healthier, lower sugar things for a few weeks, I made healthy pancakes. Now I am not by any means gluten free, or on the paleo diet (give up carbs and dairy? Never! The idea is laughable!), but I came across a recipe for coconut and almond pancakes which sounded interesting, and also happened to be gluten/grain/dairy/sugar free and paleo diet friendly. I thought I’d give them a go and despite my reservations about the lack of flour, they were delicious, moist and full of coconut flavour. They also paired beautifully with the spiced plum compote I made and are very high in protein so they fill you up. (more…)

Stollen Plait

stollen plait

Baking stollen is one of the very few Christmas traditions that I have and I make it in some form or another every year. I don’t think I have ever baked the exact same recipe twice, I like to play around with it and try new recipes, I have tried many variations ranging from a very traditional German recipe to cinnamon roll style stollen buns. The one constant is that it must contain marzipan; I LOVE marzipan and will happily eat chunks of it out of the packet as I bake, although I try to control myself so that I have enough left for whatever it is that I am baking… (more…)

Mini Panettone With Cranberry And Ginger

mini panettone with ginger and cranberry

I spent the day yesterday moving domesticgothess.com from wordpress.com to self hosted wordpress.org. I say I moved it…but really I spent the day watching over his shoulder as my fiance did it for me and asking stupid questions…It took a while, there were a few confusing moments and the site had a bit of downtime but we (he) got there eventually. I wanted to move to self hosted so I could use plugins and customise the site a little more so I will be having a play around and making a few changes over the coming weeks. (more…)
